Sculptures that Dance

“Dance and the soul

The dance? It’s not movement
sudden musical gesture
It is concentration, in a moment,
of human natural grace

Not on the ground, in the ether we hover,
we would love to stay there.
The dance- no wind in the branches
sap, strength, perennial being
a being between heaven and ground,
new domain conquered,
where seek our passion
free yourself everywhere …

Where the soul can describe
its most divine parables
without escaping the form of being
over the mystery of fables ”

Carlos Drummond de Andrade, 1964
